|Digimap and OS OpenData

The Ordnance Survey has now made freely available a range of data sets which include both vector and bitmap (raster) maps, data on postcode locations, a gazetteer of road names, and the National Public Transport Access Nodes (NaPTAN) dataset and gazetteer. However, the popular 1:25000 and 1:50000 maps are not included, although next month will see the launch of VectorMap District containing midscale data. EDINA has produced a useful chart which compares its maps with those now covered by OS OpenData, and is inviting feedback from Digimap users.
